A 3.75-inch stiletto heel makes them the perfect height for a formal occasion, date night, or girls' night out.

Stuart Weitzman Aleena Metallic Leather Wedge Sandals

You can't go wrong with these Aleena Metallic Leather Wedge Sandals from Stuart Weitzman. The two-strap sandals feature a walkable 2-inch heel that's ideal for long days on your feet.

Balenciaga Drapey Slide Sandals

Elevate your casual summer outfits with these Drapey Slide Sandals from Balenciaga. The plush slide sandals are crafted from crinkled calfskin leather in a shiny golden shade. The exaggerated twist on the top draws inspiration from the house's iconic drapery and tailoring. 

A heads up. They're known to run small, so you'll want to order at least a half-size up. In addition to jean shorts and graphic tees, they look great with a tailored pair of black trousers or an airy maxi dress.

Cult Gaia Enid Padded Leather Platform Sandals

Statement-making platform heels— like these Enid Padded Leather Platform Sandals from Cult Gaia— are one of the biggest shoe trends of the summer. While the wood platform heel measures 4.5-inches tall, it's surprisingly lightweight and comfortable thanks to a plush rubber sole. With two padded straps and a sky-high outsole covered in channels of padded leather, the metallic platform sandals have a groovy, disco-inspired feel.

Jimmy Choo Maelie 70 Metallic Mules

It's impossible to resist these Maelie 70 Metallic Mules from Jimmy Choo. The elegant metallic sandals put a modern twist on some of the label's early 2000s styles. The slip-on heeled mules feature a chic square toe with a delicate strap detail that draws inspiration from y2k heeled flip-flops. They're crafted in Italy using luxe materials and careful craftsmanship that makes them worthy of becoming your signature shoe.
